The Toronto Pride Parade is the capstone event of all the amazingly colourful marches, music, and events that you have been able to check out (and still can!) this month.

And it’ll be coming through Toronto’s downtown streets this weekend.

The parade will kick off at 2 pm this Sunday, June 23.

Celebrating 50 years of global marches, thousands will be marching tall and proud in one of the largest pride parades in North America, with the over 200 groups joining together for the event.

The non-stop energy will be fueled by a variety of floats, performances, and plenty of glitter.

It will begin on the corner of Church Street and Bloor Street and end off at the TD MainStage at Yonge-Dundas Square.

Here’s the full route:
